Date with a Vampyre - Reissue
1. Date With A Vampyre
|Out of stock|
The two defining 12" releases from the Screaming Tribesmen, in their entirety for the first time ever on CD, together with nearly an album's worth of bonus tracks! The Tribesmen came out of Brisbane in the early '80s recording two classic singles for Citadel. We pick up the story when former Radio Birdman/Hitmen/ New Christs guitarist Chris Masuak joins the fray and the band becomes one of the hardest working in the land.
This CD features their best-selling Date With A Vampyre EP from '85 and its follow up, Top of The Town from '86 and includes a number of tracks that have never been on CD before. As an added bonus, we've included 9 live and rehearsal tracks, featuring one unreleased original ('It May Be Love') and a whole bunch of covers that the band made their own (and which their fans LOVED) back in the day, including Roky Erickson's 'Two Headed Dog', Television's 'See No Evil', the Dictators 'Baby Let's Twist', the Vertebrats' 'Left In The Dark', Lou Reed's 'I Can't Stand It' and the Easybeats' 'Good Time'.
The rehearsal tracks are from a short lived line-up from 1984 that included Hitmen/New Christs drummer Mark Kingsmill just before he joind the Hoodoo Gurus, and Hitmen/New Christs bassplayer Tony Robertson.
